I want to have all my files in the cloud but I don't want to sync them all to my desktop computer. I want to be able to sync only the files I need for the projects I'm actively working on.
I must say I'm completely astonished that this is not a basic feature. When I look at the various threads it's been on the "to do" list for several years. Sigh.
Does Adobe wonder why we look to others for our solutions?

My team doesn't have the hard drive space to sync all of our files. Selective sync would be huge because we could still share our entire library without the burden of our hard drives being eaten up by the files we don't need to sync.
This is so vital...! I would buy the 1TB plan in this very moment if I could selectively sync my files to my pc.

Please implement this feature, its essential...
On vacation, have to share a file with a coworker. First I have to sync 862 files which will take more than 4 hours because i'm in the middle of nowhere on slow as shit GPRS. I just want to sync my files that my coworker needs. Not all other files... damn... Ah great, a forced update of the fu CC desktop app... just hilarious...

Was considering moving from Dropbox to Adobe Cloud, but seeing that there’s no selective sync, I won’t be buying more storage. This just eats up mine and my teams storage space on our SSDs, and I have no interest in this.

Seriously, there still no selective sync option for the Cloud !!!? :(
Diana Paton commented
I cant believe this option is not available. Google drive is clearly a better option. I'm moving all my files until this becomes available. Impossible to work on my laptop otherwise.
seriously. what possible reason does adobe have to not have this incredibly simple feature

I work on a couple different computers with various drive capacities, one being a Surface Go with only a 128GB HD, being able to selectively sync folders to the drive is essential. Please make this a priority!

I have large files on CC that are FREEZING UP MY LAPTOP and shut down CC! Please activate selective sync so I don't have to house files my team needs but I do NOT need to work on.
As long as there is no selective sync the cc cloud cannot be used on any computer with small storage.
It is ridiculous and the reason we don't use the cc cloud and some programs.
How long must we wait for it!? It is "on the backlog" for more than 1,5 year already!!!
Piotr Sienkiewicz commented
The fact that we need to ask for this just shows how cynical Adobe is.
Selective sync is critical to my team's work. We have had to abandon Creative Cloud in favor of Dropbox and ShareFile, both of which allow us to see all the files in the cloud on our desktops without syncing them. And we can sync on the fly. I'm shocked that this is not available in CC.
Come on now! Selective sync already!

Following up on this as it's IMPOSSIBLE to work on a macbook as my storage gets eaten up.
